On Wednesday, January 29, 2014, the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) will host a seminar to provide insight to the complex process of exporting feed and feed ingredients into the United States. The "How to Export Feed and Feed Ingredients to the US" seminar will be held during the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
"Over the years AFIA has seen an increased interest and curiosity by IPPE participants in exporting feed and feed ingredients to the US," said Gina Tumbarello, AFIA manager of international trade. "The seminar is designed to address this growing demand by providing a variety of information from a diverse panel of speakers. If you are currently exporting to the US or thinking about it, this seminar will serve as an excellent resource."
The half-day seminar will include presentations from both the Agriculture Department's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Topics include: US Feed/Feed Ingredient Import Trends; APHIS: Exporting Animal and Plant Products to the US; and Customs Brokers: Representing Companies not Located in the US. Dr. Daniel McChesney from FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine will also present at the event, addressing the timely topic of the "Food Safety Modernization Act-What Exporters to the US Need to Know."
The early bird registration fee is $40 before December 31. The registration fee will increase to $60 on January 1, 2014.
